I like the mechanic, this card is could be better than it looks since some people (like me) hate giving the opponent ANY advantage, that's probably wrong most of the time but yeah sometimes this card will hit the face like 4 times cause your opponent didn't want to give you the 2/2. a 2/2 and 2 1/1s are quite similar in value, if warrior is everywhere a 2/2 is better than 2 1/1s also better against defile.
actually, 2 1/1s are very much not the same as 1 2/2. Reason being hero powers. Hero powers are the most common removal and thus 1 health minions get a big hit from it. 2 2/2s versus a 4/4 is much more comparable. not the 1/1 to 2/2 comparison
While a 2/2 is probably a bit better than a pair of 1/1s, the trigger is a lot worse. I see no reason for them to have printed this card in the same rotation as Eggnapper. If Eggnapper were rotating out at the end of this year, fine, it's all good. But in the same rotation cycle? Why, Bliz, why?
The tokens are guaranteed for Eggnapper while Vryghoul is not, so you have to take that gamble for what benefit??? Getting a 2/2 over 2 1/1??? It's not even a improvement in many cases.
It's a 3/1 your opponent doesn't want to kill. If they do, a 2/2 is a lot different than two 1/1s. honestly it depends on the deck which one is stronger, but overall I think the 2/2 is better.
You think your opponent will be shivering in his boots so a 2/2 doesn't pop out? Eggnapper is better in 75% of cases.. 50% comes from the fact you can trade on your own turn with no drawback, the extra 25% comes from 2 1/1's being better than a single 2/2...Vryghoul gains 25% when a 2/2 will actually be better than 2 1/1's. It's not like Vicious Fledgling where you can keep ignoring the board state and SMOrc, there will be many times you have to trade this on your own turn and you don't get shit for a Deathrattle. That is a big drawback and that is what makes it worse.
